not only won, she won by 16 points. republican senator scott brown of massachusetts, who was so stuffed with hedge fund misunderstood that he burped credit default swaps. scott brown lost by a lot to the nation's foremost authority on the economic rights of the middle class. after marriage rights for same-sex couples were voted down in state after state after state for years, more than 30 times in a row, this year, all change in maine, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in maryland, they voted on marriage equality and they voted for it. in minnesota, they were asked to vote against marriage equality, and minnesota refused to ban it. in washington state, the vote is not called yet. they are still counting the vote and we will be watching it closely, but if you are on the pro-gay right side in washington state, it should be noted that it is looking pretty good. in iowa, anti-gay activists were sure that they were going to turf out a judge for ruling in favor of marriage equality. they had done it before, to a bunch of other judges. they had been successful every time t
be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another name i haven't heard but my virginia centrist byas leads me to bring up is mark warner, senator from virginia, great businessman, has bipartisan appeal. i think he could be strong as well. the last one that's opening up is chief of staff, jennifer g n granholm apparently she is -- >> yes. >> apparently they really want to get her in in some position. >> more jenny g. >> the energy, cheerleading. >> unrelenting positive vibe and energy. >> for jenny g. >> i'd like to get rahm back. not a possibility. >> kerry
on the vote tally in arizona and senator scott brown is hinting at his political future. first as new members make their way to capitol hill, allen west continues to fight for his seat. west has now filed a complained in st. lucie county yesterday calling for a recount of all the early ballots in the race. west trails patrick murphy by 0.58% and according to state law an automatic recount is needed only when a difference in votes is 0.5% or less so not at that threshold. west told nbc, quote, i think that we need to have the electoral process play out as it should, and then wherever the results lie, that's fine with me. but i want to make sure we have honor and integrity in that process. meanwhile, on the hill yesterday democrats held a press conference to introduce incoming members of congress and the house minority leader nancy pelosi addressed murphy as congressman elect. the only nonsitting member to speak. >>> meanwhile, out in arizona there are 340,000 ballots that have yet to be counted in the senate race between richard carmona and jeff flake. carmona did concede on election night whe
of money that jerry brown had to spend to get that initiative across the finish line. it is not a strong argument that is a popular thing. i am all in favor of california experimenting on itself. i think it is a fair to do a more of a peach tree-sized in california, but they are having an experiment. most americans have been leaving california. people from california lead appeared states that maryland experimented with the millionaires' tax the other day. people were leaving. it is helpful to have the states to give you a lesson on what happens when you decide to raise taxes on the rich. they move a. >> moving ahead to the fiscal cliff. john boehner has reiterated that the newly elected house republican majority is opposed to raising tax rates. they're willing to accept new revenue under certain conditions. what is your reaction to that? despite the pledge that most of them have signed? >> if we had a recovery the strength of reagan's recovery, there would be 10 million more americans at work today. but we take rate in's path of less spending and regulation, -- reagan's path of less spen
anybody who was brown or black. bemis practically anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. you had a case here where the republican party right now is stampeding toward irrelevance. if they do not catch up with everything in the national journal, there is changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama yesterday put together this new ascendant coalition, put it back together from 2008 and enough of the democratic coalition so you have this combination of hispanics, more than 70% of hispanics, young voters, people who both want to twice as a democrat. they're likely to remain a dealt crack -- democrat. republicans, what they're missing is the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. like it or not, this is becoming a majority minority nation and the republican party, this is the last time republicans will have a chance at winning the presidency with this kind of electoral strategy. >> let's talk about why this happened. some of it was issues, some of it was th
. [chanting "warren"] yeah, i love you, too. i don't have to tell you this was a tough campaign. senator brown and i had our differences, but he and i just spoke and he sent his congratulations. i hope you'll join me in thanking senator brown for his service to the commonwealth. [applause] we wish scott and gail and their daughters nothing but the best. nothing but the best. i also want to speak to senator brown's supporters. the message you sent was clear. we need leaders in washington who are willing to break the partisan gridlock and work regardless of party. i know i did not earn your vote, but i promise i will work to earn your support. [cheers and applause] there are many people to thank tonight. i am going to start with my husband bruce. i also want to thank my kids, my beautiful grandkids, my brothers, my in-laws, my cousins, my nieces and nephews here in massachusetts and all across the country. senator kerrey, governor patrick, mayor, thank you for your support, for your encouragement, and most of all for your leadership. you were real fighters in my corner and i appreciate that. but
kaine and sherrod brown would have to look for a new job. he got nothing right! >> you can be bad at calling stuff but to be that blind. >> bill: what's on twitter? >> we're tweeting at bp show. you talked about karl rove. you talked about all of the money, he's some explaining to do. blue rabbit said we should send shirts to the koch brothers saying i paid millions for an election and all i got was this lousy t-shirt. >> bill: i like that. >> we were just talking about the breakdown of -- >> bill: the "the obama hate machine" ran out of gas. >> send him a couple of copies of the book maybe. you were talking about how people voted for obama. chuck on twitter says latinos deported romney and women shut that whole thing down by voting for obama. >> bill: i like that. >> we're tweeting at bp show. find us there. >> bill: melissa is in pulaski, virginia. >> caller: hello, how are you? >> bill: i'm fine. what's your take on all of this? >> caller: it is ironic. i was looking at today, all of the different groups, th
, please. >> i am wondering what impact you think a link-up moderate senators, such as brown, lugar, college are going to have on the negotiation? >> we have been waiting for some time, including actor for example senators snowe and lugar announced they were retiring, for change, and has not been there. they continued along the path in following the leadership of senator mcconnell. whether it changes now is an open question. i suspect it will a little bit, and it may well for senator brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he wil
selective. as far as california legislature, willie brown gender -- gerrymandered us with democrats controlling. are broken overspent and overtaxed. our senators are not helping us. guest: i actually don't think i am being that selected. lyndon johnson on the civil rights act, had great support from the northern democrats and the western democrats. was able to overcome the southern democrats opposition with the help of the republican party. i said that about everett dirksen so i am not really being that selected. i do think my book touches a bark -- upon the origins of the problems we have today, the toxic politics of america started in the late 1970's. one of the problems, very frankly, was the opposite -- was proposition 13 in 1978, the tax revolt that rolled in from california. i think the first basic no-tax pledge, the revolt of 1978, has been greatly responsible for california's decline. host: in the incoming term in the senate, there will be a record number of women, 20 women in all, serving in the senate. your book focuses primarily on men. do you see a shift in the operation
was able to watch part of her debate with scott brown and she made a lot of sense talking about the economic challenges that face us. i hope that her voice is heard in washington during the lame duck session. her prescription for the economy is what the voters chose. and the lame duck -- our elected officials during the lame duck session, i think should pay attention to that. >> bill: right. you're darn right she did a good job in the debates. why do you think scott brown canceled the last debate? charles is calling from birmingham alabama. what do you say? >> buenos dias senor. >> bill: buenos dias. >> caller: bill, i have not heard a lot of discussion about how the withdrawal from afghanistan might affect the budget negotiations. >> bill: yeah, that raises a very good question, charles. inappreciate hearing from you on this veterans day. the president has talked about that terry. he's said, without maybe -- i haven't heard a specific number but one of the advantages of ending the war in iraq and drawing down
of scott brown, the former governor in hawaii, heather wilson in new mexico. they could not win because of their party's brand. heidi won. joe donnelly won. this is a one size brand contaminates all other candidates, even the ones that have no ability whatsoever in some of the exotic party. yeah, we are going to hear a bunch of people with iq's lower than room temperature say that mitt romney lost because he was not conservative enough. but i think after republicans go through their seven stages of grief, they can get to a point where they can make some changes if they will be a party for the future. >> thank you, charlie. we enjoy being here. we're trying to say something that is interesting and thoughtful and novel hours after the polls close. i hope i come close to what he said. i really wanted to come out here. i really wanted to come out here and say -- i just heard what charlie said. there is not one thing i agree with. he is absolutely wrong about everything. i never say that. we always agree. [laughter] we are in general agreement on what happened. politics is so much about expe
question about how you spend your money. if i gave a lot of money to the effort to beat brown in ohio, i want to know how did we spend $20 million in unanswered media against someone who is clearly in all the pulling of the beginning was in a tough race and he won. how did we spend $20 million to $30 million in an intermediate against tammy baldwin in wisconsin and did not win? i think it may be that they just did not spin it right or ineffectively or that the old traditional tools where we put up -- i was in wisconsin the last weekend and i was watching my tv and it was sort of a pretty traditional grainy pictures of tammy and liberal, liberal and liberal and best friend of nancy pelosi and blah blah blah. obviously, it did not work. maybe the traditional people in either party who tell us to buy all of this broadcast tv are wasting people's money. the millionaires and billionaires to put money into these things will ask that question. what exactly did you spend my money doing and why didn't it work? >> i think i generally agree. there are a couple or three silos. people will be constru

who would love to run for the open seat, scott brown, if kerry were to become secretary of state. it is true the foreign relations and foreign affairs committee have shown a little less influence as far as how far and policy is conducted. >> always good to use this as a reporting and opportunity. we don't know from our book whether it is menendez or boxer who would take the job -- who would it be? >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think to >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think boxer wants to give up energy and public works. i doubt she would want to do that. i think kerry's chances of becoming secretary of state increased when susan rice kind of flubbed her media response to the attack in benghazi, and she was already not well liked on the hill among republicans. recently when i saw former senator chuck hagel say nice things about bob kerrey who was re-running in nebraska, i thought, what in it be an interesting choice for the president to make? someone who was a longtime member of the foreign relations committee and who is very smart and diplomatic, which o
majority but in california is a two thirds majority and even if governor brown promising to restrain the democrats, they can override any veto he might throw at them. stuart: what is it about california that makes californians do this politically? what is it? >> part of it is unfortunately we have had a lack of clear vision in the republican party to muster the forces to come after them and that is something we are doing a lot of soul-searching in the golden state to find out ways that we can get beyond one of our natural obstacles in connecting with latinos and asian voters and more import lead to reach out to an electorate that seems to be a little less center-right than we imagined them to be. stuart: do you now have in the state of california a large majority of people who take from the minority of people in california who make good money? >> yes. that is exactly it. you have may be 150, 160,000 well the 1% still hanging around the state in a state of thirty-seven million people and you also have one third of all welfare recipients right here in this state. you have hit the nail
in 1978 passed building standards under then governor brown who was known partially for this in the doons burry as governor moonbeam but he got it passed. so every building in california had energy standards and it's made california very efficient. these are the kinds of things -- i said portman and sheheen have been compromising. my view, katrina -- sorry -- sandy gave some impetus to dealing with climate change. and i said in new york we're going to pay for climate change one way or another. we can pay for it after each natural disaster. we in new york have had 50 -- sorry -- we have had 300 or -- sorry. phrasing it wrong. we have had in the last three or four years we have had once in a hundred year disasters with irene, with sandy. and so, you know, i think it will give some impetus to deal with climate change, but even if we can't reach compromise on that, there's lots of things in energy that we can reach compromise on and that will be on the agenda. and the fourth thing i'd put on the agenda i talked about earlier in reference to your question, dave. maybe we can get some real fina
-- well, scott brown was one of the republicans that was being counted on. my personal instinct is that the senate is doable. it is eric cantor -- you know who could play tremendous role is paul ryan. he is a champion of the conservative side of the party, but his voting record shows that he will vote for smart compromises. he will moderate his views. and he is someone who could really sell a deal to the republican right. the question is, is this the first step that he was to take toward being the nominee, cutting a deal with obama? or does he want to be the champion of, no way, we will stick with the ryan budget to the last man? >>, speaking of all right for a second, the most famous republicans in the house -- speaking of paul reihan for a setting, the most famous republicans in the house, paul ryan did all right on site. but a couple of the others, michelle bachmann had close race. alan west looks like he is going to lose. some really close contest for some well-known candidates. >> we have seen this in a couple of cycles in a row with michelle bachmann. she is learning that
for that seat? scott brown. host: "christian science monitor" headline -- "paul ryan returns to house -- is he ready for a bigger role in the gop?" guest: there is speculation that he is interested in staying on. he appears to be one of the few willing to take the difficult decisions, what ever the political fallout is. even the budget document, there is a bottom line, and everyone can see what the projected deficits are if these choices are made, where the cuts are. it is something paul ryan has been willing to do and that puts him in the heart of every important decision that the house will have to make this session. i think he has definitely kept himself in the heart of it. leadership appears to be willing to give him a waiver. i do not think he's going anywhere. host: dog to sit, your publication has this had lied -- bob to set, your publication has ?ck -- bob cus guest: a lot of conservatives were not criticizing mitt romney because it was close to the election, but i think paul ryan has a bright future. if he wants it, he will get that waiver from the budget committee. he also has his e

defeated senate candidate who would love to run for the open seat, scott brown, if kerry were to become secretary of state. it is true the foreign relations and foreign affairs committee have shown a little less influence as far as how far and policy is conducted. >> always good to use this as a reporting and opportunity. we don't know from our book whether it is menendez or boxer who would take the job -- who would it be? >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think to >> i suspect it would be menendez. i do not think boxer wants to give up energy and public works. i doubt she would want to do that. i think kerry's chances of becoming secretary of state increased when susan rice kind of flubbed her media response to the attack in benghazi, and she was already not well liked on the hill among republicans. recently when i saw former senator chuck hagel say nice things about bob kerrey who was re-running in nebraska, i thought, what in it be an interesting choice for the president to make? someone who was a longtime member of the foreign relations committee and who is very smart and
in scott brown if kerry were to become secretary of state. but it is true that the foreign relations and foreign affairs committees have sort of shown a little bit less influence in the terms of how foreign policy's conducted than any, you know, even the third level of management at the state department. >> yes -- >> always good to use this as a reporting opportunity, ma'am. do you know concern we don't know from our book whether it would be menendez or boxer who would talk -- who would take the job. who would it be? >> i don't know. >> okay. [laughter] >> i suspect it would be menendez. i don't think boxer wants to give up the environment and public works committee. >> too much power. >> i find it hard to believe she would want to do that. but i've got to say, i think kerry's chances of becoming secretary of state increased when susan rice kind of flubbed her response, her media response, i should say, to the attack in benghazi. i mean, she was already not well liked on the hill amongst republicans. but i also recently when i saw chuck hagel, former senator chuck hagel saying nice t
example, your represented by qr ran aground, but karan brown does not point to be on elected by a republican because there's no way a republican can win in that district. and i think she is a wonderful member of congress. but the only way to the caller's point is that you have a competitive election where people actually have to stand up and say, this is what i am going to do and then there will be held accountable if they do not to do it because there will be defeated in the general election host: dakota from oregon. caller: i am a sophomore college student. i have been wanting to get into politics but i feel like i cannot do that because of the ever-growing attention on student loans. and it is becoming ever more clear to me that if things are not done a, i may have to drop out of college because i cannot afford, with one small income such as mind to pay it back. i am wanting to ask you, do you think that during this lame duck session that he would be willing to work with my congressman, to try to find a way to make it more affordable for college students to not feel scared
comfortable in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think are his priorities should be coming out of today's press conference? >> the president's priorities are what he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we are one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of representatives bring up our bill. we brought up their bill. it was roundly defeated. so they should do this to help the american people. on all the other issues that the president has laid out a program on, job creation, we need to do that, so the president doesn't need any -- doesn't need any information from me. he knows what he's going to do. and he's pointed in the right direction. last question. >> [inaudible] >> most of you couldn't hear the question. but she said, what do i expect from the -- we'll be at the white house on friday and what about entitlement cuts? i've made it very clear. i've told anyone that will listen, including everyone in the white house, including the president, that i am not going
